    大聯盟歷史上共有20位左投蝴蝶球投手,以下為以蝴蝶球出名的左投投手:

    Larry French

    L

    1929-42

    Became a knuckleball pitcher in 1942. He learned the pitch from Fitzsimmons though, so it may actually have been a knuckle-curve.

    A member of the 1944 Senators all knuckleball rotation, along with Leonard, Niggeling, and Wolff.

    Used the knuckler as a change off his fastball early on. Became a knuckleball pitcher when his speed declined. May have had a hand in inventing the knuckleball while playing with Cicotte.

    1986-00

    Pitched in 34 major league games over a 14 year career. Sauveur: "One of the outings was 14 pitches, 14 knuckleballs. I threw groundball, pop-up, strikeout.

    Bobby Shantz

    L

    1949-64

    Added the knuckleball in 1951. Shantz: "the knuckler is a good waste pitch and if it comes close to the plate, the batter usually goes for it, and even if he hits it, he has a hard time getting a very good piece of it."

    Lou Sleater

    L

    1950-58

    In 1952, stopped Walt Dropo's record streak of hitting safely in 12 consecutive at-bats.
